I don’t believe in life beyond death, nor I believe in god either, or in some other imaginary friend, for that matter. But I enjoy this title. It makes me laugh.

Non credo in una vita dopo la morte, né in qualche dio o altro amico immaginario, se è per questo. Però mi fa ridere questo titolo.

Marco Bigliazzi on Rise Art

file-bcylxfbtbh Rise Art is an UK based online service about art and artists run by “a bunch of art fanatics” – in their own words. There you can find artists profiles from all over the world selling (or trying to sell) their work.

I have recently open my own page there, so now you can even find my paintings and doodles for sale. Of course, if you’re interested, you can always contact me directly here, anyway.

I really dig anchovies, cooked in several ways: fresh or canned, with onions, marinated, fried, oven-baked, in a soup, with pasta, and so on.

Amo molto le acciughe, cucinate in tanti modi diversi: fresche e conservate, alla povera, marinate, fritte, al forno, in zuppa, con la pasta, e così via.

Still Life With Hairdryer | Natura Morta con Asciugacapelli, acrylic on canvas, 60×90, 2014

This is one of the Still Lifes series. It happens, sometimes, that someone, attentively staring at the painting, frowned, after a while says: Well, now! I actually see the hairdryer. Congratulations.

Questo è uno della serie delle Nature Morte. Capita talora che qualcuno, fissando attentamente il dipinto, la fronte aggrottata, improvvisamente s’illumini e dica: Ah, ma sì! Ora lo vedo, l’asciugacapelli! Congratulazioni.
